Calorie-Cutting in Paradise

And here's another little trick from Paradise Found (Pinehurst, NC):

There is a well-known concoction around Pinehurst called the "Arnold Palmer", which is half iced tea and half lemonade.

Now try the "Dalton Hammond": Mix a packet of Crystal Lite Decaf Iced Tea mix (the regular, not with mangoes or peaches or whatever) with a packet of Crystal Lite Lemonade mix into a half-gallon (or a little more, since this comes out rather "sweet") of plain water. This tastes a lot better than you expect. Mmmm...and only about 10 calories per large serving!

You can drink this while watching TV 18 hours a day and never get fat.
